Either political authority (Numbers 24:19; Daniel 7:6,Daniel 7:12,Daniel 7:14) or the realm in which such authority is exercised (1 Kings 4:24; 1 Kings 9:19). Dominion may have a positive connotation as when humankind is given dominion over creation (Genesis 1:26,Genesis 1:28; Psalms 8:6) or a negative connotation that approximates the idea of domination (Genesis 37:8; Judges 14:4; Nehemiah 9:28). Though humans exercise dominion in the political sphere and over creation, ultimate dominion belongs to God (Psalms 72:8; Daniel 4:3,Daniel 4:34). Dominion is used figuratively for the authority of the law (Romans 7:1) and for the domination of sin (Psalms 119:113; Romans 6:14) and death (Romans 6:9). The dominion of Colossians 1:16 are angelic powers which are subordinated to Christ.
